That's what's really confusing about the article. I wouldn't call a $4400 build a "budget" or "value" build. That's out of reach of many people. I realize the people voted, and picked the components, and in most cases picked reasonably, but as a complete build cost total, it really isn't "value" at all, at least what I was expecting when Vital first announced the project build. I guess "value" has a different definition to different folks. But it also highlights the escalating costs of bikes vs what most people can afford.

That's true, but also brings into question whether this is really a budget build. Not sure I know anybody who's looking to build a DH bike on a budget, yet can drop $4400, but wouldn't buy one of the many complete DH bikes available for that number or less. Even if you can spend that amount of money, you'll still be better off buying a complete bike & replacing the components that don't satisfy you. Heck, if you buy that Precept, sell the fork, you'd be able to essentially have your pick of any DH fork on the market and still spend less than $4400.

That's so true. We've heard plenty about the benefits of larger wheels. How often do we see 26" marketed for its better agility, acceleration, lighter weight..... I was excited about 27.5 when it was another option. Too bad it's looking like we are loosing an option, not gaining one.

A "bri" flip? What kind of stupid BS is this? He just tailwhipped his bike at a different angle... I'm down for different variations of tricks because it keeps things interesting but this "world's first" trend is absurd. You don't see people calling a dumped 360 a "hurculean spin" and you def. didn't see someone post up a world's first video in order to gain some cheap attention.

Thank you for that comprehensive description. Had noticed most of it, but still think the silhouette is close to the 450... Definitely not COMPLETELY different :o)

Awesome bike. Two questions - how is that fork? I've been looking to upgrading to it on my Trance 29er but I can't find any reviews (that's the 140-110 travel one?). Also, did you measure the head angle or just calculate it?

I liked how some of the course was actually on a public bike path. And how even the race winner bypassed the huck to flat. A lip to stair tranny is one thing, but huck to fat? So nineties.
